Chile to face Brazil tonight

DHAKA: The first match of the knock out round of the world cup-2014 between host Brazil and Chile will be held at 10:00pm tonight at Belo Horizonte.   

Brazil becomes the champion from group A and Chile secured second position from group B.    

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari admits his side is becoming more afraid as they prepare to face Chile. 

"It is normal for us to be anxious, especially now in the knockout stage where we cannot lose," he said.

"We become more afraid, more nervous. It is normal. Not because it is in Brazil, but because it is a World Cup." 

He added: "You only get the chance to get to the final if you win." 

Host nation Brazil won two and drew one of their group games to qualify comfortably for the last 16, with star man Neymar scoring four goals in the three games.

But Chile were also impressive in wins over Australia and Spain to book their passage from Group B. 

And Scolari, who led Brazil to World Cup success in 2002, said shortly after the draw for the tournament was made last December that one of the opponents he would least like to face would be Chile, news BBC sport.
